Back-stabbing failed presidential candidate and South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham received a scathing rebuke this week when he began calling for Republicans to un-endorse presumptive GOP nominee Donald Trump over his legitimate criticisms of La Raza-associated Federal District Judge Gonzalo Curiel.
“I have very little respect for those in elected office right now who are salivating for the first opportunity to run out in front of the cameras and scream ‘I Told You So!’” Trump surrogate and RightAlerts.com political editor Scottie Nell Hughes said during an exclusive interview.
“The ones right now who are criticizing Mr Trump are the same ones who opposed him during the primary season, and thanks to their non-endorsement then, Mr. Trump is now the nominee of the GOP,” she added.
The hoopla started last week when Trump began demanding that Judge Curiel recuse himself from two separate class-action lawsuits filed against Trump University. The billionaire candidate maintained that the judge’s ties to the La Raza Lawyers Association, as well as his alleged personal relationship with the plaintiff’s lawyer, made him unfit to handle the cases.
This criticism of Curiel inspired immediate cries of “racism” and “bigotry” from the left, and Sen. Graham apparently decided to jump on the liberal bandwagon.
“This is the most un-American thing from a politician since Joe McCarthy,” Graham told The New York Times Monday. “If anybody was looking for an off-ramp, this is probably it. There’ll come a time when the love of country will trump hatred of Hillary.”
In continuing her scathing indictment of the South Carolina senator, Hughes noted that we never “see the Democrats tearing each other publicly to shreds.”
“They handle their grievances in private, and I would hope this is one lesson these obviously bitter GOPers would learn,” she added.
Good luck with that. Graham still hasn’t figured out that politics as usual isn’t going to get him very far in 2016, so we expect him to keep following the establishment playbook … and keep marginalizing himself with the American public.
